Mainly because I don't like the normal AOO logo and I wanted to try
something different. Also it's sort of cool to use a font that is also
under AL2.

We had never used a customized logo but that was mainly because
no one got to do it. I personally don't spend time on copylefted code
and I wouldn't have felt any motivation to do anything like this for the
previous OOo (or for LO).

Welcome :). I had already did some minor modifications to the license
font but for the time being the idea is to use this as a replacement for
intro.png, (that and about.png can be specified with "configure").

I am not yet considering this for smaller images.

Thanks for the feedback!
